List of my favorite animes and mangas
20th Century Boys
A long story about a childhood friends group, their symbols and it's relationship to "Friend", a cult leader that wants to take over the world with his "Friendship Party".
21th Century Boys
Continuation of 20th Century Boys
A magical notebook falls into the word dropped by a shinigami, if a person has their name written on it they die, the protagonist Raito Yagami decides to use the notebook to start killing criminals with the objective of creating an utopia with himself as god.
An an ex-military anthropology teacher and insurance investigator investigating insurance claims.
A teenager solves a puzzle that gives him the spirit of an Old Pharaoh claimed to never lose any game.
Maybe weird to put in here alongside these others, but Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z and even Dragon Ball GT were big parts of my childhood and the first media I remember obsessing about. The anime tells a story of a kid with a monkey tail that is super strong and helps a very rich and smart woman track the Dragon Balls, magical artifacts that by uniting 7 of it grants you a wish.
Dragon Ball Z
Continuation of Dragon Ball
Dragon Ball GT
Continuation of Dragon Ball Z that I didn't like as much, but it was/still is very special for me.
We don't talk about Super
Fugou Keiji Balance Unlimited
One of the few media on the comedy genre to genuinely make me laugh. In the story there are two cops, one is broken but idealistic while the other is insanely rich and pragmatic, both have to work together to solve cases.
Serial Experiments Lain
It explores a lot of themes, including but not limited to reality and identity, the protagonist is Lain, a middle schooler. I can say with certainty that this anime changed my life.
Let's all love Lain
Vatican Kiseki Chousakan
Anime about two priests who work for the Vatican investigating claims of miracles, one is a master of science and math while the other has a vast amount of theological knowledge.
Zankyou no Terror
Anime about two terrorists who upload cryptic riddles on the Internet for the police to solve and try to prevent their bombs from blowing up.
